BELIZE CITY, Fri. Jan. 23, 2015–Belize City police, after investigating a report made by a 15-year-old minor, have arrested and charged tattoo artist Esteban “Steve” Mossiah with two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse.
The forty-five-year-old Mossiah appeared unrepresented before Magistrate Hettie Mae Stewart this morning and was arraigned on the charges.
No plea was taken from him, because the charges are indictable and will be heard in the Supreme Court.
Due to the nature of the offences, Mossiah was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until his next court date on February 24, 2015.
The 15-year-old reported to police that on Tuesday, January 6, and on Friday, January 9, she had sexual intercourse with Mossiah, whom she knows as “Steve Mossiah,” at his residence and at his tattoo shop, which is located on Barrack Road.
